“At last a book that teaches parents how to talk to kids about sex in a way that is based healthily in reality and not fearfully in doom and gloom. I wish my parents had read this book!”

Leslie Kantor

Leslie M. Kantor VP of Education, Planned Parenthood

“Al Vernacchio has written a wonderful book that includes numerous model answers and a new way to think about adolescent sexuality — as a force for good in life rather than simply a problem to be dealt with.”


David Hall, Founder, Innovative Learning Institute

This book is a must read for any parents or anyone who works with youth. Vernacchio creates a safe space for his reader about a sensitive topic while being brilliant, insightful, and funny. This book is accessible for everyone, helping make all of us better parents and educators.
